18. PASSAGE
The economic transformation of India is one of the great business stories of our time. As stifling government regulations have
been lifted, entrepreneurship has flourished, and the country has become a high-powered center for information technology
and pharmaceuticals. Indian companies like Infosys and Wipro are powerful global players, while Western firms like G.E. and
I.B.M. now have major research facilities in India employing thousands. Indias seemingly endless flow of young, motivated

engineers, scientists, and managers offering developed-world skills at developing-world wages is held to be putting American
jobs at risk, and the country is frequently heralded as the next economic superpower.
But India has run into a surprising hitch on its way to superpower status: its inexhaustible supply of workers is becoming
exhausted. Although India has one of the youngest workforces on the planet, the head of Infosys said recently that there was
an acute shortage of skilled manpower, and a study by Hewitt Associates projects that this year salaries for skilled workers
will rise fourteen and a half per cent, a sure sign that demand for skilled labor is outstripping supply.
How is this possible in a country that every year produces two and a half million college graduates and four hundred
thousand engineers? Start with the fact that just ten per cent of Indians get any kind of post-secondary education, compared
with some fifty per cent who do in the U.S. Moreover, of that ten per cent, the vast majority go to one of Indias seventeen
thousand colleges, many of which are closer to community colleges than to four-year institutions. India does have more than
three hundred universities, but a recent survey by the London Times Higher Education Supplement put only two of them
among the top hundred in the world. Many Indian graduates therefore enter the workforce with a low level of skills. A current
study led by Vivek Wadhwa, of Duke University, has found that if you define engineer by U.S. standards, India produces just
a hundred and seventy thousand engineers a year, not four hundred thousand. Infosys says that, of 1.3 million applicants for
jobs last year, it found only two per cent acceptable.
There was a time when many economists believed that post-secondary education didnt have much impact on economic
growth. The really important educational gains, they thought, came from giving rudimentary skills to large numbers of people
(which India still needs to doat least thirty per cent of the population is illiterate). They believed that, in economic terms,
society got a very low rate of return on its investment in higher education. But lately that assumption has been overturned,
and the social rate of return on investment in university education in India has been calculated at an impressive nine or ten
per cent. In other words, every dollar India puts into higher education creates value for the economy as a whole. Yet India
spends roughly three and a half per cent of its G.D.P. on education, significantly below the percentage spent by the U.S.,
even though Indias population is much younger, and spending on education should be proportionately higher.

22 Passage:
Sixty years ago, on the evening of August 14, 1947, a few hours before Britains Indian Empire was formally divided into the
nation-states of India and Pakistan, Lord Louis Mountbatten and his wife, Edwina, sat down in the viceregal mansion in New
Delhi to watch the latest Bob Hope movie, My Favorite Brunette. Large parts of the subcontinent were descending into
chaos, as the implications of partitioning the Indian Empire along religious lines became clear to the millions of Hindus,
Muslims, and Sikhs caught on the wrong side of the border. In the next few months, some twelve million people would be
uprooted and as many as a million murdered. But on that night in mid-August the bloodbathand the fuller consequences of
hasty imperial retreatstill lay in the future, and the Mountbattens probably felt they had earned their evenings
entertainment.

While the Mountbattens were sitting down to their Bob Hope movie, Indias constituent assembly was convening in New
Delhi. The moment demanded grandiloquence, and Jawaharlal Nehru, Gandhis closest disciple and soon to be Indias first
Prime Minister, provided it. Long years ago, we made a tryst with destiny, he said. At the stroke of the midnight hour, while
the world sleeps, India will awaken to life and freedom. A moment comes, which comes but rarely in history, when we step
out from the old to the new, when an age ends, and when the soul of a nation, long suppressed, finds utterance.
Question:
In the view of the author, what does Nehru's phrase 'Tryst with destiny'
symbolise today,
1. A celebration of Indian independence
2. An inspirational quote
3. A reminder of Gandhi's assassination
4, A symbol of the ills of the partition
